Fill color for pen tool not retained?

Recommended Posts

I think this topic came up already, but I couldn't find it, so sorry if this is already answered:


If I use the pen tool ("P" in the Draw Persona), set its stroke color to "none" and the fill to any color, on the second click of the pen tool the fill color switches back to "none", so I get an invisible object. I tried all kinds of color selections (context menu above and color wheel on the right) - after closing a form and starting the next, on second click it's back to none. It shows the previously selected color in the context menu bar again after finishing a shape or curve, but doesn't use it.


This is very counter-intuitive - I can e.g. draw multiple rectangles without loosing the selected fill color - for the predefined forms it works as expected.


Maybe I missed a user setting for that? I think it behaved differently before 1.2.1.

Hi Achim63,


Select the Pen tool, on the context toolbar is an option for "Use Fill", could you enable this and try your steps again. If you continue to have issues, let me know and I will look into it further.

Thank you, that's what I was looking for - but not on the other end of the context bar. This should rather be near the fill color selection - or the fill color field might be disabled or somehow greyed out while that checkmark is not set. I don't really get the sense of the checkmark, since I can set the fill to "none" regardless.

So now this is an improvement request by a user blinded by a very crowded UI ;-)
